Who We Are

We think that Eastern Ontario is a pretty special place. The area has great access to water sports in summer and snowmobiling and cross country skiing in winter. It features a fine regional theater called the Upper Canada Playhouse, as well as an historic town nestled on the banks of the St. Lawrence River called Upper Canada Village. And it’s home to Ottawa, the capital of Canada.

However, while we might be a little biased, we think the best place in Eastern Ontario is Morrisburg, which is the location of our world-class bur manufacturing facility.

There are three things that make the factory at 2 Prospect Road a pretty special place:

  • Our machinery. One big reason other manufacturers’ burs seem to all perform the same is that they tend to buy their machinery from the same vendors. The way we see it, the way to make sure our burs are unlike everyone else’s is to not only design our own shapes, but to design our own bur-milling machinery as well. And that’s why the machinery that resides in our Morrisburg factory cannot be found in any other factory in the world.
  • Our processes. Some factories like to brag about “manufacturing to ISO standards.” We, however, manufacture to Canada’s ISO 13485 (CMDCAS) standards, which many experts consider to be the most exacting standards in the world. In fact, we are so obsessed with quality control that we inspect our products at up to ten different stages during the manufacturing process.
  • Our people. Canadians are known for their exceptional work ethic, but what really makes our people stand out is their tremendous pride. They aren’t content to make the world’s best bur; they are on a quest to make the perfect bur. Our customers may think we’ve already achieved that goal, but our people will tell you that while our burs might be the best, they’re not quite perfect. Not yet, anyway.

If you’re planning to visit to Eastern Ontario, you should know that we don’t give public tours of our factory. Sorry, but we can’t take a chance that our competitors will sneak in and try to steal our ideas.

But if you are in the area, please stop by to say hello. We’re always interested in meeting another bur connoisseur!

Garrison Dental Solutions

Garrison Dental Solutions

Who We Are

Like so many entrepreneurial businesses in America, Garrison Dental Solutions started out in a basement; the basement of Dr. Edgar and Dr. John Garrison’s dental practice. That’s where the original Composi-Tight Sectional Matrix system was brought to life back in 1996. Many years and several hundred million matrix bands later, that same energy and enthusiasm that got the ball rolling is still driving us forward.

It was a family business back in the “good ole days” and still is today. Three of our four founding partners are still with us. Brothers, Tom and Dr. John Garrison along with good friend and engineer Rob Anderson are keeping steady hands on the wheel. Tom and John’s father, Dr. Edgar Garrison, the fourth partner passed away in 2009.

The company is still headquartered in Spring Lake, Michigan. Although we have moved out of the basement, we didn’t go far. Just to the other side of the parking lot and into a new building we built in 2006. We’ve expanded in other areas as well. Our flagship product line, the Composi-Tight Sectional Matrix System has grown to the number one product of its kind and is used on all seven continents around the world. Yes, even the dental facility at McMurdo Station, Antarctica has Composi-Tight.

We’ve achieved that reach through continuous improvement. Garrison continues to improve our products and searches for new opportunities every day. Who knows where else you’ll find our products in the future!
